That probably about what the shop paid for it, maybe a little more ($375 or so) if they absolutely couldn't get a new one in. If I were in that situation, I'd probably go up there with $500 cash and make an offer.
If you want it and are willing to pay the final price negotiated that is all that matters.
In my experience, a hypothetical cash price it's what's on the gun. A cash price is where you start counting out cash on the counter.
Does anyone pocket carry theirs? I think you could try, but carry own or own may be better. I'd be looking to try pocket carry in docker/ slacks.
I did see a new P380, now that is definitely a pocket gun. Price was 550. That's an option too.
nothing reliably, even after a professional polish of the feed ramp. I sold it off and shortly after that it was pulled from our approved list of off duty weapons along with the .380
No experience with the CM line, although they are billed as a budget model of the PM series. The Kahr handbook strongly recommends a 200 round break in period, which I did several times over, but the same issues persisted.
I love my CM9
I found out that it does not like the extended 7rd mag I bought. Searching on Kahr forums found that it's common... Kahr magazines absolutely suck. Search for the post about sanding the follower to make it more reliable.
Mine will nosedive nearly every round in the 7rd magazine UNDER the feed ramp if using Federal FMJ ammo... Magtech and Aguilla are no problem.
I pulled 5rds of each type and checked the OAL...
Federal is the longest. Aguilla was the most inconsistent but shortest overall.
The Federal also has the least "round" FMJ round of the 3 which I think contributes too:
What happens is the ammo will slip forwards early in the magazine and get caught under the feed ramp and it doesn't tilt up because the magazines have poor frontal support from the looks of it.
For now I'm just using the 6rd magazine until I can fix and verify the 7rd magazine works.
edit: I'll add that the CM9 is INCREDIBLY soft shooting... I freaking love it and now shoot it better than my 4.25" 1911. I like the long and smooth DAO trigger.
Every manufacturer sends off a few lemons on occasion. So long as the model line itself is not otherwise a failure, it's no more trouble than sending it back. Not fun, not what anyone would wish for but not an impossible situation.
